Waterstreet is your next BIG find. WE ARE THE GROOVE. Our infectious melodies and honest lyrics will have you humming all the way to the office. Trained in the art of improv our live shows are continually new and exciting - while we remain disciplined enough to put out that hit radio song.

Biography

Waterstreet came together above a clam shack in Little old Rhody. We played our first gig in May 2003 and haven't looked back. We've been through the growing pains of losing pieces to the puzzle and found our true love for the music each time. Our current line-up shows our true colors and style.

What seperates us from the rest?

We love the music. We sacrifice daily to make the music great. We continue to practice and find ourselves. As long as we're playing together - whether it be on stage or in our studio - we genuinely enjoy each other and respect the talent and skill each of us brings to the table.

INFLUENCES:

We spread our pallet as wide as possible to create our distinctive sound combining elements of Rock, Jazz, Blues, Funk and Hip Hop. We grew up listening to the Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd, Phish, Soul Live, John Scofield, MMW, Clapton, The Roots, Digable Planets, Tribe called Quest, Counting Crows, DMB, and Bob Marley to name a few.
GIGS:

This is what we live for. The LIVE SHOW. We try to play 3-4 shows a month and continue to branch out into NYC and Boston. We have the Providence scene locked down and use local bars to fine tune new material and experiment. We were playing once a month at the AMCE in NYC and are looking to get into some other venues. We hope to be a staple in the NEWPORT RI scene this summer.

THE TOUR

We did put together our own tour in the summer of 2004. We played Chicago and Bloomington Illinois as well as Baltimore, Philly, and NYC. We had a great time and look forward to doing more of the same.
We recently took a few months off to regroup and write new material. We have started to fill our schedule and look forward to a busy spring and summer.

Lyrics

Civil War

Written By: Matt Greiner

Gunshots fire in the dark
Pinning me to the ground
Footsteps shake the ground below
Coming from all around

My uniform confuses me
Hat is blue, shirt is red
I write you this letter, love
To get a glimpse inside my head

The battlefield is filled with dead
They all look like me
My Northern mind fights the South
A heart that calls for thee
I love you, baby, but I’m caught in a Civil War
I need to serve the North, but the South means so much more
I’m wounded, baby, still I’ll make it down the trail
And be home soon, my love, for the South will prevail

My men are strong and protect me
I’ve served our family well
The cannon fire won’t let me sleep
Until I fall under your spell

Called to war, away from you
The distance makes life hard
So I keep your letters square
In the pocket above my heart

The battlefield is filled with dead
They all look like me
My Northern mind fights the South
A heart that calls for thee

I love you, baby, but I’m caught in a Civil War
I need to serve the North, but the South means so much more
I’m wounded, baby, still I’ll make it down the trail
And be home soon, my love, for the South will prevail

The South will prevail
The South will prevail

Discography

Our debut album, Osmosis, was released on July 16th 2004. We are currently working on the sophomore album. You can find us on Itunes as well as Mix radio(www.mix102.net).

Set List

We always try to put on a SHOW when we play. So our set lists are always carefully constructed. These are the songs we have been working into our rotation in the past few months:
Originals off the album - Future Rough, The Hypnotist, Fast Cookin Woman, Good Day.
New songs: Caveman, All These Years, Trust Me, Without Sin, Water Street, Into the Light, Sympathize, Fade Away, After all is said and Done, Stayin In, and Too Late

COVERS: We've recently begun adding covers to the mix. You may hear a Dead tune now and again. We are trying to bring something new every couple of shows. We cover stuff by Keb Moe, Counting Crows, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper. We've been known to rock out a "So Lonely" or "Little Wing" depending on the crowd. We've even covered old school hip hop.

Based on the venue and the time slot we can play two hours straight or give you the 45 minute version and anything in between. We love long sets where we're able to stretch out a bit, but do both well. W
